The Oshkosh Area Community Pantry is a food resource available to residents in northern Winnebago County.
The pantry strives to offer quality nutritious food for families when their food budget runs short/out.
In addition to shopping once a month, the pantry offers programs designed to help special groups…like kids. They have a backpack program that works with the Oshkosh Area School District to make sure hunger is addressed after the kids leave school. The students take home a backpack to be sure that the students have food during the weekend. The kids’ corner is one more way OACFP is being an advocate for kids, to learn about nutrition, serving sizes, money savings and making good choices.
Another special group they service are homebound people. We have a home delivery service available for handicap residents.
The pantry is open Mondays 3-7 pm, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 10 am – 3 pm and the first and third Saturday of each month from 9 am – 11 am. They are closed on Fridays.
The pantry survives on donations of food, money and time. One of the biggest needs is your time. Without volunteers the doors would close. Wesley UMC has a wonderful group that volunteers on Tuesday mornings from 9 – 12 am. Cash donations allow the pantry to buy food from Feeding America at $.19 per pound. Our volunteers put donations on the shelves for over 1700 families each month that we provide for.
The pantry loves giving tours and answering questions. Please feel free to contact us Monday thru Friday 8am – 4 pm at 2551 Jackson Street or by calling 651-9960.
